It’s finally time to find out what all the hype’s been about.
Firewatch, the first game from indie studio Campo Santo, and one that’s been generating lots of buzz ever since its first reveal, is finally out tomorrow. Reviews have had some some time to spend with it, and a lot of them have good things to say about it.
Firewatch is a modern adventure game that borrows from Telltale’s style, and innovates on new ways to keep you immersed in its world. You play as Hank, a newly-hired firewatch in the 1980s, who took the job to escape a personal burden.
We, too, have been played and enjoyed it. And we have quite a lot of things to say about it.
